Mercedes Benz will forever be known for its luxury coupes. This year they rolled out two exceptional vehicles. The CLA is a one-of-a-kind four-door coupe with impressive performance technology. The C-Class offers the well-known luxury of a two-door coupe and pairs it with unmatched performance capabilities and speed. Decisions, decisions. Let our comparison guide help you make a perfect choice.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA offers powerful performance starting at $36,650 MSRP. The CLA features a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine that outputs 221 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The advanced coupe also comes standard with a 7G-DCT 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The C-Class is equipped with the same engine as the CLA but is fitted with a 9G-Tronic 9-speed transmission. The C-Class offers 255 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 acceleration in just 5.9 seconds. Both coupes come with Dynamic Select, which allows drivers to choose between five different modes, including Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual. Dynamic Select guarantees a custom and exhilarating ride every time, no matter the terrain.
Mercedes-Benz knows luxury, so it’s no surprise that both cars have some of the finest standard interior features. For starters, both vehicles feature a sleek panorama roof and high-style, high-tech cabins. Both coupes come standard with impressive technology, such as 3 years of Mercedes me connect services, Remote Start via Mercedes me connect Mobile App, and dual-zone climate control. The C-Class offers even more luxury with power driver-seat memory, 64-color LED ambient lighting/illuminated door sills, and KEYLESS GO®.
Luxury includes peace of mind when it comes to safety. Both the CLA and C-Class offer today’s latest advancements in safety technology. This includes Active Brake Assist, Attention Assist, Blindspot Assist, Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), and so much more. The C-Class is upgraded to offer PRESAFE®, which actively works to prepare and protect passengers from an unavoidable accident before it happens. It’s no wonder the C-Class was awarded as a Top Safety Pick+ for the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety for 2020.
There are some clear and distinct differences separating the 2020 CLA from the C-Class. The main difference is the price. For an extra $9,300, the C-Class will deliver everything the CLA offers plus a few additional components. The CLA has the feel of a modern-day sedan with a futuristic luxury appeal. As is the case with most vehicles, Mercedes-Benz offers an extensive line of optional premium features to personalize your ride. These packages will affect the overall price of your coupe but are worth perusing. The C-Class combines sport and luxury to create a unique driving experience. If you’re looking for advanced technology in a classic body, the CLA is for you. If you want to live on the edge with intense speed capability, there’s no other option than the C-Class
Do the CLA and C-Class offer Parking Assist Packages?
Yes! Both vehicles offer Parking Assist Packages. For the CLA, it’s an additional $1,090. For the C-Class, it’s an additional $1,150.
The 2 Series is a cheaper vehicle starting at $35,300, but you also lose the performance and efficiency that comes standard with the C-Class. The BMW comes standard with a smaller engine and ultimately less power and speed capabilities.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz hasn’t hit the market just yet. Some car review sites anticipate it to be released sometime this summer and feature the same sleek design of the 2020 coupe with a few minor changes.
